Had a beautiful and relaxing week at the lake, but alas, all good things must come to an end and today it was back to work! There were more fireworks on the 4th this year than I have ever seen before. We enjoyed sitting out on our dock and watching them all up and down and across the lake. Lots of big, pretty ones. We had a neighborhood parade in our little cabin subdivision, followed by a huge potluck - it's an annual tradition and lots of fun. Came home from the lake with a few extra pounds so I need to get back on track!

Marilyn, your insight into relationships and individuals attitudes is so right on in so many ways. Thanks for expressing that.
This is the first I've sat all day except a brief breakfast and lunch. I picked my Oregon Grape bushes, cleaned, cooked them and made jelly. Only 5 half pints for all that effort, but boy is that stuff good. Worth the effort!

Hi Everybody!
Jeri, Hope you have encouraging results from your dr. appt. this week.
Patti, nice that you have a back up tracker to use. I don't have one, but may ask for one for my birthday. DH has a Fitnit and loves it.
Caz, Hope your hair appt. goes to your liking. I am going for a color touch up today.
Joy, Love your beautiful garden. No wonder you love spending time out there.
Cat, Hope you have some fun things in store this week.

We are going to our financial advisor today for a little check up to see if we want to make any changes. Eventually when we start tapping into retirement savings we will have a lot f taxes to pay because they are tax-deferred. But we want to hold off n that as long as possible.

We had a really nice visit with the uncle and family yesterday and we laughed and laughed.
I just realized why we spent so little time with our families over the years. Nobody seemed to
have much of a sense of humor and definitely didn't know how to make fun of someone in a kind way and laugh about it. Everything had to be serious and if there were any disagreements
they didn't know how to argue about their differences and then get over it. My FIL particularly
taught by example to hold grudges and then become estranged from people. What does that get you? Not much. It seems in life you have a choice. You can be right or you can be happy.
It can be pretty lonely to be right. Even if I had learned this lesson sooner, my FIL would not have been open to hearing things like that. Very sad. I guess the consolation is that he did the best he could with the level of consciousness he had.
So my tip for the day would be to think of a relationship that needs some mending. It is worth it.
Have a great day!

Marilyn

Good Morning All, Looks like it's going to be a nice day; a yard day for sure. I also have to call about getting my air conditioner looked at. Cool this mornng.
Patti, I probably have a half dozen back up pedometers in an office drawer! I will not be without one. Everything from freebies of questionable value to a duplicate of my favorite Omron! I keep back up batteries too. :)
Thank you everyone to the positive comments on my garden blog. It's my most enjoyable exercise. It's so good to be able to be back out there! Make it a great week!

Good for you, Marilyn, trying to mend fences.
Patty, good luck and hope you find that little bugger.
Jeri, this rest from regular exercise might just help your foot heal.
Joy, HI.
CAZ, glad your pain snapped!
Everyone I hope I don't miss - have a safe and wonderful evening.

Hi Everybody!
Patti, hope your Spark tracker turns up. Do you enjoy watching the fireworks on TV, or do seeing all the government buildings not of interest since you are there all the time to work?
Caz, I am so glad your hand is feeling better. Enjoy your time with John and Vicki.

Joy, Glad you enjoyed the fireworks on TV. I think the music on A Capital Fourth is much better than our local orchestra, and you get to see all the glorious DC buildings on the Mall.

Jeri, Glad you got to rest your foot, even though it was a tiring day with your DD.

Cat, Greetings to you. I always admire your canning projects.

Today we are going to visit an uncle we rarely see. There was a family slight 30 years ago
that had carried on until my in-laws were gone. So we are trying to mend some fences.
Have a great Sunday!

Marilyn

Good morning. We spent Friday and Saturday with our oldest daughter, doing baby things. It wore me out! I'm sure my husband is much more tired. He and my son-in-law were moving furniture from room to room. Sometimes a couch doesn't come out the same way it went in. Those two men were exhausted when it was all said and done. I'm very glad to be back home today. I have done no exercise since Thursday. I think I'll take today off, too, and then hit it hard this week. I go back to the orthopedic doctor for a foot checkup on Thursday. My foot is still discolored around the break. It's been almost two months. I don't know why it's still discolored. So weird.

Good Morning All, Turned out to be a nice day yesterday and I hung out with DD most of the day. She went ahead with her yard sale as it's the first dry Sat. we've had for awhile. Settled in later in the day and watched the National and Macy's fireworks on TV. I really enjoy the patriotic music too! Neighborhood fireworks were a bit much. More illegal sky rockets than I remember in the past and a lot of noise makers; really had the girls stressed. Passed on a late invite to a neighborhood party. Ready to relax in the evening. All is well here.
Caz, I'm glad your hand it better; no matter the cure.
Patti, sorry about the spark tracker, hope it turns up.
Stay well everyone.

Hi Girls
Marilyn it's the strangest thing, i was wringing out the dish cloth and all of a sudden the pain stopped yesterday. I'm sure I'm the weirdest person on earth LOL
There's always a small rabble to stop celebrations for everyone else- yes enjoy yourselves but have consideration for others. Glad you enjoyed the lake.
Patti not again! What a shame.

Well it was over 30 degrees yesterday,we're having the hottest July on record, thankfully there was a breeze so it was bearable. DH soldiered on in the loft and has the door partition almost done, he wanted to get it in place and glued up by dinner last night so it dried over night. Progress. I got some light gardening done and enjoyed the sun for a while.

John and Vicki are coming over for Sunday Roast today. Walk this morning should be lovely there's a soft breeze and not a cloud in the sky!

Have a great week everyone.

Had a busy day today. Went to the mall and then went grocery shopping and then came home and went out for a 4th of July party. Somewhere along the line, I lost my spark tracker. That is the second one that I have lost. So I will just use another type of pedimeter for my walking.

Hi Everybody,
Susan, there are no words to express my feelings of sympathy at your tragic loss. I am lifting
prayers for you and your family.

Caz, I am sorry you banged up your hand. Hope you can find some relief soon.
This year has certainly brought a lot of physical challenges to this team. I think the group support helps everyone power thru them.

Joy, hope you are able to get out in your garden soon.



Hope everyone is having some nice weather. it is beautiful here today and will be perfect for
fireworks tonite. I think we will just enjoy "A Capital Fourth" on TV from Washington DC. We do have fireworks in Akron, but we don't enjoy them much anymore. It is part of a rib festival where they sell beer. Some of the people that attend have become so uncivilized that it takes the fun out of it. I have always felt that when you are in a public place you must have regards for people around you and have some manners. Nobody seemsto be teaching or learning manners anymore. Enough said.

We did get to go for a drive yesterday to a neat little village that is an old resort town on Lake Erie called Geneva on the Lake. It has a bunch of old wooden cottages built in the 50's, which was state of the art back then. Some are a bit run down, but it has a certain charm and all kinds of people can go there and have fun and coexist in a relatively small area. There are lots of wineries, but it is still fun for those who don't drink.
So I am thankful that there are places like that.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and relaxing day.
Marilyn

emoticon Good Morning All, Slowly getting my stamina back, did get in all my fitness minutes and 10,000+ steps yesterday! Hoping for a yard day but too early to tell. Threats of showers all weekend. Very wet but clear out now won't be able to decide before 10, if it stays clear should be able to work in the yard, weeding and mulching so no digging in the wet dirt. Just working on paths.
Susan, my heart remains heavy for you and your family. I just can't imagine the pain of losing a little one. Hugs.
Have a safe 4th weekend everyone. emoticon

Dear God, Susan, I am so sorry for your family loss. What a terrible loss. Prayers to your family.
Patti, take care. The heat has a way of making us sick without even realizing it.
Marilyn, you and your DH will enjoy those special pieces of furniture as they bring back memories. I have my parents bedroom dresser that I use for my kitchen/dining linens and I always think of them.
Jeri, good choice not going to VA Beach for those few days over a hot holiday.
Everyone, enjoy your evening.

Ladies, I will be off line for a while.
My family has been hit again with another tragedy.
Last night my new baby great granddaughter passed away after she was taken to the hospital by my granddaughter and baby 's father when her feeding became to little.We are all in a state of shock, numbness, and feel completely shredded.
There is no reasoning for this to have happened and we must wait a few weeks before we have an autopsy report.

It appears it may have been a heart problem as she did have cardiac arrest 5 times last night. They could not help in the end. Every time they brought her back, she would code again.
I just can not go on as I have very few words right now. I know you will understand my absence and I thank you for all the prayers and kind thoughts that I know you will be feeling and sending . I will be back later but at the moment I cant think about anything else but the grief we are all going through.

Susan from
Welland Ontario

I WILL reach my GOAL!
I WILL fight for it!
I WILL NOT give up!
NOTHING will STOP me!

Hi Everybody!
Patti, glad you are feeling better.
Judy, I am glad you are enjoying your cabin and getting exerrcise as well.
Caz, I feel for you and everyone there dealing with the hot weather. It must be a real challenge at places like Wimbledon.
Joy, I hear you about not being able to schedule things and just going with the flow. That is something I have to work on continually, as I like to have things nailed down as much as I can,
and life isn't like that many times. But I realize that unscheduled time can often lead to a richness in life that I never would have experienced if my schedule is always full.

We are busy today moving in a few pieces of antique furniture from DH's parents. That means
moving some other things out to make room. A consignment shop is coming to pick up some things this afternoon. Then I can try to clean the carpet where there will be dirt and furniture marks. When you move a piece in on new carpet and don't move it for 20 years, it is shocking
to see how dirty the carpet is next to the place that was covered by the furniture. I really need
a professional carpet cleaning soon, but there just isn't time to see about it right now.

Time to retreat to the front porch for a break.

Life is good.

Sorry I was not able to get on this morning. I was not feeling all that well. My stomach was a little queasy so I ended up going to the nurse and taking Pepto and laying down for a half hour. Feeling much better now.

Good Morning All! Heavy rains continue this morning emoticon . I had planned on working on the gardens with DGS. Never did get the mulching done because of the health issues the past two months. Still, glad for the rain. Really hard to schedule work days with the kids anymore; everyone is so busy. Yet, that too is a good thing. Change of plans but it will be a good day regardless. Have a fun, safe weekend everyone!

Getting an early start before it gets any hotter. It's 26 here already at 8.30
Yesterday was the hottest July day on record at 37 degrees!

Heading back to the cabin in a few minutes. I am going to take my Tony Little Easy Shaper with me and get back to some resistance training, which I've been neglecting terribly. Got on the scale this morning and am staying about the same, but I guess on vacation maintaining is much better than gaining! A bit rainy today, but hoping I can get in at least a couple miles of walking. Will check back in a few days when I get to town again.

Good Morning All, Yesterday turned into another rainy day and not yet sure what today will bring. Wet and overcast this morning. Had a good walk with GGS in the stroller yesterday. Morning walks seem to be the best bet weather wise for awhile. He's growing so fast! Even enjoying books on his own more now!

Hi Girls
Man it is hot 35 degrees and climbing. I feel for the players at Wimbledon- it hit 40 yesterday.
Today is set to be the hottest day for a DECADE!!!
Walk early and workout early then taking the day as it comes

Happy July everyone

Home from the cabin tonight since I have to be at the dentist at 8 a.m. and will run a few errands before heading back to the lake in the morning. The weather has been good, but the smoke from the Canadian fires has made it seem like it is overcast for the past 2 days. Tonight I can see some blue sky, so it must be breaking up. Having a good week and keeping my food intake down and my exercise up! Got in almost 15,000 steps today!! So relaxing out there - we are loving it!

Hi Everybody!
Susan, She is so sweet!
Jeri, I think you are smart not to make this beach trip. That's a long drive in a short time.

Today I have a small retirement gathering for someone I used to work with. And then I am
meeting my Red Hat gals who are going to the convention in Aug. to make a few plans.
If it doesn't rain again I will get in my outdoor walk.
Have a good one!

Marilyn

I love all the sweet baby pictures! I am looking forward to adding our newest one in January.
We decided not to go to the beach this weekend. My daughter and her family are going, and that's fine. But we really have other things to do, and the beach just doesn't fit into our plans right now. It's almost a 10 hr drive. That's a long drive in each direction for a 3 day weekend.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good morning. Today is an exercise rest day for me. My daughter called me and asked if we want to go to Virginia Beach this weekend. I don't really. It's a 10 hour drive with 6 kids on a holiday weekend. But then my husband whined and said, "You never want to do anything with the kids." It's not that at all. It's that I don't want a rushed 3 day weekend, one of the busiest of the year. We will easily spend $1000 minimum, and I think it's ridiculous to spend that much money on a rushed trip when we could plan it for later in the year and actually take a few days off to make it much more relaxed and enjoyable. But listening to my husband whine over it, I just said fine. Whatever. I had planned to go to our other daughter's house and go to Babies R Us with her.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Hi Everybody!
It feels so good to be back in the fold. Joy, I really admire you for being so active outdoors. That is the downside of living in a condo, that we don't get the exercise of outdoor yard work
and snow removal.
I have gained some weight and need to get back to my healthier habits. Today I will get a walk
before it rains again.
Happy Monday!

Marilyn

Good Morning All, Tired this morning; worked with grandson in the yard yesterday and it wore me out. Even with him doing the heavy work. He's coming back today and works best if I work with him; plus I enjoy it. Need to get moving!

It's really nice to have you back Marilyn; you were missed.
Happy Monday everyone!
